OH, NOES!!11!! NOT THAT!!11!! ELEVENTY!!11!!
As you all know by now, the left has been having a frothing-at-the-mouth fit over IMAO since it was named Funniest Right-Wing Blog at CPAC a couple weeks ago, defaming it as a bastion of hatred and racism as they do with all things they wish to denigrate and destroy.
As with all things they get their panties in a wad about, they have taken it much too far, forcing us to comment on things we had previously sought to ignore.
Well, this one takes the cake! It seems singer Sheryl Crow, curious to know more about the blog that had become the latest subject of the official “Two-Minutes-of-Hate” on the Sinestrosphere, got all upset over the image of Sarah K. holding a gun in one of the t-shirt ad pictures that cycles in the right-hand margin.
Lo-and-behold, along comes a new music video that has become the talk of MSNBC and the left-wing blogs, directed by none-other than Michael Moore and featuring Crow and Tony Bennett singing about the evils of guns and demanding an end to “Blogs that shoot their hate right at your face”, it even boasts cameos from Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, George Clooney, NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and others. Unbelieveable!
I tried to embed the video, but of course the site wouldn’t allow embeds, so you’ll have to click on the link to see it.

Now I know the only proof we have are some grainy photos and witness testimonies from drunk farmers, but I still believe in gay marriage

I imagine that it must suck that people who just want to ban guns in this country are forced to lie and pretend that they don’t.

Being an ideologue isn’t as problematic as being a hyper-partisan. Ideologues care about ideas; hyper-partisans childishly care about teams.

I love that all Senators who haven’t come out for marriage equality but plan to say their “evolving.” They’re not Pokemon.

Man, I thought Jim Carrey’s gun control video was a desperate plea for help, but that Boycott IMAO Twitter barrage…
You know your career is over when you go from pulling down $20 million per film to picking on a semi-obscure political humor blog to get attention.
And Jim Carrey

John sent me a picture with the following commentary.
My state senator, Tom Davis (R), just posted this on his facebook page. Apparently it is on display at Robert Smalls Middle School in Beaufort, SC (which is of course a public school).
It’s a little hard to read, since penmanship is apparently less important than socialist propaganda in the public education system, but it says:
“You can’t have capitalism without racism”
And you can’t have progressivism without tacky, talentless, pedantic paint-slatherings masquerading as “art”.
I have seen, the desperation and disorder of the powerless: how it twists the lives of children on the streets of Jakarta or Nairobi in much the same way as it does the lives of children on Chicago’s South Side, how narrow the path is for them between humiliation and untrammeled fury, how easily they slip into violence and despair. I know that the response of the powerful to this disorder — alternating as it does between a dull complacency and, when the disorder spills out of its proscribed confines, a steady, unthinking application of force, of longer prison sentences and more sophisticated military hardware — is inadequate to the task. I know that the hardening of lines, the embrace of fundamentalism and tribe, dooms us all.

I will channel their frustration and despair into my own civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the US military, and sic them on any of “the powerful” who displease me. Occupy Forever!
So Planned Parenthood has finally laid everything on the table and come out for infanticide. But intellectually, they kind of have to. I mean, we’re talking one minute it’s okay to rip apart a baby and the very next minute suddenly it’s supposed to be wrong merely because it’s locale has changed? So, whatever; the choice of whether to murder an infant should just be a choice between a woman and her doctor and her god — presumably in this case Moloch.
Fun Fact: In some primitive cultures, infanticide is frowned upon. That’s what happens when you don’t have women’s lib.
As I’m guessing you all probably know by now, IMAO has picked up a bit of unwanted attention when we were named the funniest right-wing blog at CPAC. Now quite a number of people on the left are focusing on us to prove that all right-wing humor is hateful and racist. There was first the numerous idiotic diaries at Kos, then the Huffington Post had their over the top, faked-outrage take on us, and then we’ve even become a regular object of hate on MSNBC, such as this recent mention by Chris Matthews — the dumbest man on television (our mention is near the middle of the clip):
Now, this is all so stupid we’ve just been trying to ignore it and hope it goes away as we figure it’s been some slow news days and the left will soon find another object to hate, but now there is a bit of a boycott effort going (how do you boycott a blog? we don’t sell anything; what idiots) and our service provider keeps getting complaints about us. It’s threatening the blog, so I thought it was finally time to make a statement on this.
We’re not a hate site. We just do a bit of light humor from the perspective on the right, but we’re not racist. That’s ridiculous. Still, we’re going to work harder to make it known that what we’re doing here is just for fun and not hate. For instance, we’re going to stop the lolobama posts; I didn’t think of how its similar to lolcats we’re sort of comparing Obama to a cat and we all know the invidious racial history there. In fact, we’re going to lighten up on Obama a lot more; it does seem hateful when we focus too much ridicule on one individual. And we’re going to make fun of conservatives more — because this is all just fun, not partisan hate and there is plenty to make fun of on both sides.
And in the interest of balancing things out, IMAO is going to look into adding an African American blogger — he (or she) doesn’t necessarily even have to be on the right. Because this isn’t about ideology — it’s about being funny. That’s all IMAO cares about. And we’re going to continue to be around and be funny, so everyone so worried about us, please lighten up.

If you’re a congressman, it’s probably just a good idea in general not to use racial slurs. Especially if you’re not a Democrat.
If you’re ardently for higher taxes, you can probably get away with an n-word use. Everyone else should steer clear of slurs.
If I turn on conservatives to get invited to cocktail parties, the cocktails at these parties are like free, right?
I’m a principled conservative in that it’s unlikely I’ll be offered the amount of money it would take to get me to turn on my principles.
Is there a difference between “post-birth abortion” and infanticide?
In some cultures, infanticide is a really bad thing.

I’ve never been very good at football, so going by Tony Romo’s contract I’m worth at least 3 million.
I don’t know about the $108 million Tony Romo contract; seems like there has to be cheaper ways to crush the spirits of Cowboys fans.

The reason DHS needs 1.6 billion bullets is so they can build a border fence out of the empty boxes.
